Champions and the Off Season

BYSA has completed another successful Fall Soccer campaign crowning three regular season champions (BU14-Bullets, GU10-Panthers, BU8-Haney) and two tournament champions (BU14-Bullets, GU10-Panthers). BYSA also had the BU8 Bethel Flash that finished in second place in the regular season despite being undefeated (8-0-2).  BYSA would like to thank all of our hard working coaches and volunteers.  It can't be done without all of your time and dedication.

A big thanks to all the Board Members who worked from dawn to dusk while hosting the U6, GU10, and BU14 tournaments. Concession Manager, Michelle Randolph, spent a majority of two weekends manning the concession stand setting a BYSA tournament concession sales record. A big part of this was selling fresh grilled burgers and hot dogs. Thank you to our grill masters that flipped burgers for two weekends. 

The nets have taken been down, trashed removed, benches collected, and concession stand cleaned. Again, thank you to all of you behind the scenes that helped winterize the fields. The next order of business will be the November board meeting at the Legion at 7pm on Thursday, November 10th.  Nominations for 2017 Board Members will take place at this meeting, with elections in January.
